? >> that's exactly what he's going to do, john. reagan came into the debate with a caricature, an out-of- touch old geezer with 1930s values and views, cowboy, not very knowledgeable, and he knocked that dead by his appearance and the way he handled himself. romney comes in and is similarly caricatured partly because of his own mistakes and partly because of what democrats said about him, partly because of the merciless attacks from the media on him. so he's got to be a fighter, someone who's competent, tough and takes the measure of barack obama and says look, we can't take four more years of this and here's where we're going. if he comes in there tough and competent and destroys that caricature, i think he can still wake up this country, and i think there's still a chance he can turn it around. he's got to win it, though, john. >> obama's campaign staff is telling everybody it sees how good romney is at debating. >> well, each of the campaigns sent out a memo basically saying how good the other guy is and stressing all of their guy's flaws. ironically, they are right. both of talent

to try to sustain it>> so what's left to say? >> whatever you want to say. >> what about john harbaugh the coach? do you like him? >> i do. i like the baltimore ravens and because their offense has gotten better, it's helped their defense. even though they've gotten older, joe flacco is proven in big ballgames he can be the quarterback that can take them to a superbowl with their weapons. colby jones has been contributing a lot more. you've got to love ray rice, the type of player he is. if joe flacco is struggling, he can kind of take over a ballgame. it's nice to have a guy you can turn around and hand it off to, and give it to him 25, 30 times in a game he'll get you 100 yards. that's what i like about the baltimore ravens, going into kansas city, to see the way kansas city played today. they turned it over six times. they turned it over half that many times against the ravens they'll lose. >> quick question. how do you keep from falling in love so much with the passing game and utilize a weapon like ray rice? >> i think they have shown when he is not involved in the game, they kind
